Elly the Ghost From Coventry
Elly is still like a flying dervish and we did warn Mrs H and she said at the time "Ah, that is OK, it is normal Devon Rex behaviour, but we hear that Elly has taken her bounding to a level surpassing some of the Deons in Mrs H's home and she isn't always adored for some of the things she does. "When she feels like flying she is like a whirlwind. Up and down the stairs, making enormous jumps onto the cabinets and then throwing off the ornaments, preferably when Fred (her half brother) is waiting so she can aim at his head. Only one thing I don't like at all. The moment I bend over she jumps on my back and starts using it as a scratching post. But when I scream she jumps off again."
Elly sounds a right little pest and recently there was a discussion on Face book about Tilly and Elly doing similar things. It made me laugh so hard because we are all renowned for the following at Maystar so everything is locked away, shoes, jewelry and such things we can steal. I often steal lots of things and hide them in the cardboard hide out on the landing, until I peed in it and ruined it! So to this end we read that Elly does similar things too. "Elly uses my boots to hide her treasures in is also nice. At first I didn't realise she was doing this so then my foot went into a boot and reached a nail clipper. Elly was waiting for it to happen and laughed. I know now what to expect and empty them daily." I know she will be doing all the usual stuff too like opening doors, stealing food, emptying cabinets and draws, but these are just normal Devonshire acts. Elly has also had her tail measured because it was found to be very long indeed at a whopping 28cm. She is 2nd longest in the 5 cats who live with her, only topped by her half brother, Fred, beating her by a cm. Elly has a whopping 5cm advance on the shortest tail. Quite a tale has been told about Elly that's for sure. The best part is the stories of the love she gives and how happy she makes Mrs H. Just a shame about using her new Mom as a scratch post!!! Ooops. That's what makes us Maystars so special though!
Tilly Tickle Kitty Little
Then there was the terrible stress she causes Ms B by stealing jewelry. "Tilly has done the ultimate in the night and taken a very special ring from my table and now I can’t find it and thee the carpet fitter is due." The carpet man came and went and no ring was found in the bedroom. "Tilly has just thrown the Ewe and Me’s off the windowsill and is currently looking smug, saying to herself, ‘ Not telling where I put your ring.’ " This went on for quite some time and finally we hear "Ring found right under the bed in a shoe!". Are seeing a resemblance here at all at Elly's house? Tilly is doing well at the shows she is attending and bringing home the ribbons too which is nice for Mrs B as now Tilly can eat those and not her Hopps heart maybe?
Lionel the Mad
Mr & Mrs S tell us "Lionel is utterly delicious, mischievous and hillarious. He does a spectacular vertical jump when he has been waiting to ambush you around a corner. He is super cuddly in the mornings and purrs very loudly." We haven't had any reports of him stealing jewelry but the comment 'mischievous & hillarious' might give those types of behaviours away to the onlooker. I can imagine he is quite the antic player and we know he is very loved and NOT for the children - and ADULT ONLY CAT we have been informed. Although, he does get on with everyone he meets and is very confident and sociable around everyone.
I am still away, that's why I am doing updates about everyone because, basically, if I am not home - the place is dead and dull without me! Nothing bad happens, nothing is broken or stolen or eaten or hidden. Pearl is busy with the 5 boys, who are growing so fast and I am missing them all terribly. I love kittens and they will need me. My body has declined being in call whilst I am away. I am a pest. Momma sent a food parcel out for me so I don't outstay my welcome with my boyfriend. Faith is loving having Momma all to herself without me thwakking her on her face to move. Lillibet and Flaire are still in a love of war they are always in. The love hate relationship. Much thwakking and chasing. Momma is going to give her a pill to stop her having a call and that should help a little bit. But with me gone, Top cat status is being fought for and when I get back there will be a huge bust up I am sure. Not with Pearl though, I love her dearly and she will always be bottom cat even with a litter of kittens!
I shall take my leave now - I have nothing to report only that my view is of boys boys boys and do i want one when I can? Nope. They don't turn me on at all once I am in their company - maybe I prefer ladies?
Bye for now, your loyal Queen Vee =^..^=
